I am new to my ICU/CCU unit. I came to ICU/CCU with 9 months experience on a Medical/Oncology unit. I was not able to complete my orientation with my original preceptor because of my class schedule (I'm working on my BSN), and I was assigned to another preceptor, who either treated me like I knew absolutely nothing (not even how to give an IM injection) or that I knew everything. She would even leave to go talk on the phone (personal calls) for an hour when the other nurses were very busy and I couldn't find anyone to ask questions. After about 2 weeks with this preceptor, I walked in to work, expecting to still be on orientation, to find out that I had my own patient assignment with no preceptor--I was out on my own. (Thank goodness my original preceptor was there that night and I didn't have unstable patients) I still have a lot of unanswered questions, and I'm still not positive why I was turned on my own, but I definitely don't feel like I was ready. The experienced nurses say that I'm doing fine, but I have never had an unstable patient. Any suggestions on how to handle my situation?
